HEALTH BENEFITS OF PINE NEEDLE TEA
Our Pine Needle Tea is bursting with VITAMIN C, with 4 to 5 times more per serving than a glass of orange juice! Did you know that VITAMIN C from supplements (synthetic) does not have the complete health benefits offered by natural sources such as pine needles (see Vitamin C's Immune Benefits)? Natural VITAMIN C is a strong antioxidant that can boost blood antioxidant levels. Drinking our Pine Needle Tea may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases including heart disease, help manage/reduce high blood pressure, reduce blood uric acid levels, help prevent iron deficiency, and protect memory function (see source). Again, our Pine Needle Tea is loaded with natural VITAMIN C!
Pine needles are also an excellent source of VITAMIN A which is important for eyesight, bone health and helps build your body’s defense system. A combination of VITAMINS C and A is used for treating acne and our Pine Needle Tea is excellent for the skin – helping develop a shiny complexion, strong nails, and strong smooth hair.
Our Pine Needle Tea also contains ALPHA-PINENE, a natural terpene (terpenes are what give medicinal plants their distinctive odors) which is known to have anti-bacterial and anti-microbial (see published study) properties along with being anti-inflammatory (see published study). Other potential benefits include memory enhancement and the ability to fight against the onset of early Alzheimer's Disease (see published study) (see published study).
D-LIMONENE is another terpene found in our Pine Needle Tea. Being a solvent of cholesterol, D-LIMONENE has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. It has also been proven to relieve heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-LIMONENE has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer (see published study).
SHIKIMIC ACID is a plant phytochemical that’s touted for reducing blood platelet aggregation (considered anticoagulant) - that's right...reducing the chance of blood clots (see published study) (see published study). SHIKIMIC ACID is the main component in the popular drug Tamiflu (see published study) prescribed and used to effectively prevent swine or Avian flu due to H1N1 virus. But did you know that 1/3rd of the world’s production of SHIKIMIC ACID is obtained from genetically engineered E. coli (see published source)? Maybe that is one of the reasons Tamiflu has such a risk for neuro-psychiatric and behavior disturbances (see published risks).
SURAMIN, an isolated compound originally derived from an extract of pine needle oil, is only available by injection. However, anyone can now take advantage of this compound in the natural form in our Pine Needle Tea. One of the benefits of using whole herbs instead of isolated extracts is that an herb is a much more complex mix of chemistry that has just the right amount of different substances that work together, resulting in a more substantial effect than all the substances individually.
SURAMIN as medication is used to treat African sleeping sickness and river blindness. Current research is underway to study the effects of using SURAMIN for autism (see published study). Pine needles represent a natural alternative and require no prescription.
SURAMIN is also noted to help the body through post-medical procedures, both complex surgeries and simple ones and is believed to be particularly helpful for blood clots as well as protecting your DNA and RNA. It has also been suggested it may act as a potential antidote for transmission of spike proteins (see article here). Extensive information, history and benefits of SURAMIN can be found (here).
There are many other natural compounds found in our Pine Needle Tea including CHLOROPHYLL and QUERCETIN, which may assist in endurance training and workout recovery (see published study), acts as a natural mood booster, aids in weight loss, improves sleep, etc. Pine Needle Tea has virtually no calories and is naturally caffeine free, making it the perfect beverage for those on a ketogenic diet or those who practice intermittent fasting.
